      Hoagland, Porter; Jin, Di; Beet, Andrew R.; Kirkpatrick, Barbara; Reich, Andrew; Ullmann, Steven G.; Fleming, Lora E.; Kirkpatrick, Gary (2014-03)
      Human respiratory and digestive illnesses can be caused by exposures to brevetoxins from blooms of the marine alga Karenia brevis, also known as Florida red tide (FRT). K. brevis requires macro-nutrients to grow; although ...

    • The importance of human dimensions research in managing harmful algal blooms 

      Bauer, Marybeth; Hoagland, Porter; Leschine, Thomas M.; Blount, Benjamin G.; Pomeroy, Caroline M.; Lampl, Linda L.; Scherer, Clifford W.; Ayres, Dan L.; Tester, Patricia A.; Sengco, Mario R.; Sellner, Kevin G.; Schumacker, Joe (Ecological Society of America, 2009-02-10)
      Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are natural freshwater and marine hazards that impose substantial adverse impacts on the human use of coastal and marine resources. The socioeconomic and health impacts of HABs can be considerable, ...
    • Improving the accuracy and utility of harmful algal bloom forecasting systems

    • Inferring functional extinction based on sighting records 

      Jaric, Ivan; Gessner, Jörn; Solow, Andrew (2016-04)
      The term functional extinction is used to describe a permanent failure of reproduction or recruitment in a population. Functional extinction results in a truncation of the age distribution, but this can be very difficult ...
